    so we are not predicting the Next Gen tourney at all? Kind of relieved, I guess. So nothing is due until Fed Cup this Saturday?

    Re: Predictions : Week of 111218

    So, it looks like atlpam missed the deadline, putting mysterX in the top 8 as alternate. Looking at the picks among the top 8, everyone picked Djokovic and Federer to win their RR matches, everyone picked Cilic to beat Isner, everyone picked Nishikori to beat Thiem, and everyone picked Djokovic to beat Federer in the final. That leaves four RR matches with disagreement:

    Zverev vs Cilic (Omega, Miles, and Drop have Zverev)
    Zverev vs Isner (tenedab and dry have Isner)
    Anderson vs Thiem (Anderson just won, FEBravo and mysterX had Thiem)
    Anderson vs Nishikori (tenedab has Anderson)

    For the semis:

    tenedab has Anderson making the semis
    mysterX has Thiem making the semis
    Omega, Miles, and Drop have Zverev making the semis while the rest of us have Cilic; in fact, Omega, Miles, and Drop have the exact same picks across the board. If they are right about Zverev winning two RR matches, those will be the medalists.

    If they are wrong or partially wrong, then it gets wild. Fascinating.
    Rest in peace, Lizbeth Rivera (1988-2018).

    All eight of you picked Fed to go undefeated through to final? Boring! That's where I would have gone for separation...but my picks usually wind up the most unique.

    I'd make fun of everyone taking Nole too but that just seems too inevitable.

    Re: Predictions : Week of 111218

    Only 1 person had Nishikori over Fed...I wasn't right about much this year in predictions, so I'll take my day 1 lead and forget the rest of the year. I'm also the only one with him not making the semis.

    Meanwhile, almost everyone had the right Fed Cup winning team, but only Dave G correctly called it 3-0.
